Making his Cactus League debut, Taijuan Walker whiffed four over three frames of one-run ball against the Brewers on Monday.
Walker served up a leadoff home run to Lorenzo Cain in the bottom of the first inning, but he managed to settle in after that. The big right-hander also pitched well in a "B" game last week and appears in line to serve as the Marliners' fifth starter at the beginning of the season. Fantasy owners should take a wait and see approach. Mar 09 11:26 pm (EST)
- Taijuan Walker pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings in a "B" game Wednesday in Mariners camp.
- Walker will make his Cactus League debut sometime next week, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
- Walker, who was slated to make his first Cactus League start Thursday against the Giants, will instead pitch in a simulated game Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "We'll bump him back," manager Scott Servais said. "We'll probably do one more live up-down before we slide him into the regular 'A' game rotation. I thought he threw well on the backfields today. He felt good coming out of it, so he'll continue building on that." All Taijuan Walker (R) News
